KCD Paris appoints partner of media relations
KCD Paris, the public relations firm that works with an array of high profile, luxury fashion clientele has made a change in its leadership. The company has promoted Alexis Arnault from managing director to partner of media relations, succeeding Laurence Laure, who retires this autumn.
As partner, Arnault will lead the KCD Paris office while developing and implementing
strategic direction and vision for the agency alongside Chairman, Julie Mannion and KCD’s six global partners in NY, Paris, and London.
During his 18-year tenure at KCD Paris, Alexis has been an integral part of the Paris Media Relations team which serves as a European hub for the agency. He has led key accounts including Balmain, Mugler, Gap, AMI, Wooyoungmi, and Amazon Fashion. Most recently he has worked with Marine Serre, Brunello Cucinelli, and Iris Van Herpen, as well as events and initiatives for brands including Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta and Armani. As managing director, Alexis has been responsible for developing the Paris Media Relations team and growing new business for the Paris office and the KCD Media Relations Group worldwide.
“Alexis provides strategic leadership for the agency’s clients which has led to the continued growth of KCD in the European market,” says Julie Mannion, chairman of KCD.
“His dedication to the team, which has doubled in size since his start at the agency, is immeasurable and we are proud to have him to lead the office and agency from both a client and structural perspective.”
Laure joined the agency when it expanded into Europe with a Paris office in 1999. Julie
Mannion, Chairman of KCD noted, “Laurence will be missed tremendously”.
“She is the heart of our Paris office and has been instrumental in its growth and development. We are so excited for her next chapter, but she will always remain in the KCD family.”
